Hi

I have an instance of SQL Server 2005 installed on my Data server, and now I can not open the SQL Server Management Studio because I am getting an error in the EventsLog that the dll msvcr80.dll is not found.

I tried to get the right version od this DLL .6195 but still having this issue.

I tried also to reinstall only the SSMS component within the DVD and it doesn't work, sounds like it requires the all version installation.

I updates my Windows many times .... without any results.

I found some tools to fix the DLL but most of them need to pay for this, any free tool?

Any help for this

Thank you

not really, perform a full backup on existing database a nd uninstall all the components then give a server restart. Later you can try to install the SQL server from scratch.

For me, give a try to uninstall the client tools alone then give a server restart. It may help u. Good luck..

You may want to do a clean install of windows and sql server -from scratch.
(back up your data and sql server databases)

msvcr80.dll is a system file and from what i have seen in forums -it can be a problem to resolve if its missing or corrupted.
I would have thought instaling VC++ 2005 components and restarting the server would solve the problem -but you say it does not.

If re-installing windows is not an option,you will have to do with installing sql server management studio in another pc and then connect to your instance with databases in the server.
